My team members and I have a lot of variable synching issues. We currently only use Environment variables as we monitor all or our collections. We all use the Postman App itself, but I also use the Web version for running monitors manually. We have tried a couple of different processes, and our issue is intermittent.
But, a lot of times what happens is a member will create and add a new Environment variable to one of our workspaces, and enter the data in the “initial value” column. They will run the collection which uses that variable and once complete, assign it to myself for a code review. When I launch postman, I try to remember to “reset” all variables, but I do sometime forget. However, the issue that will occur, is I will not see the variable at all. Or, sometimes I will get a ‘stale’ version of the variable.
I am located in the US, and the rest of my team is located in India, but I don’t think that should matter. We tried different methods of creating a new variable and adding the data to both the ‘initial value’ and ‘current value’, or adding it just to the ‘initial value’ and remembering to ‘reset all’ before execution, but we still seem to run into the issue periodically. We’ve also tried logging out of Postman itself and logging back in. But none of this seems to work.
Does anyone else face this issue? Is there a process we should follow when creating new variables that would help with this? Could it be related to using both the postman app and the web version?
Any help would be much appreciated!
